Other personal items snapped up include knee-length high-heeled boots worn by Prince during his 1988 Lovesexy tour (£13,500) and a necklace from his Diamonds And Pearls music video (£6,300).

Rihanna & Drake dating again
The 28-year-old Barbadian singer and 29-year-old Canadian rapper have reportedly rekindled their on-off romance, which dates back to 2010.
A source told E! News: "He still loves her and never stopped... Their music together got them close again."
Rumours surrounding the pair's relationship heightened this year with their recent musical collaborations, which include the singles Work (from Rihanna's album Anti) and Too Good (on Drake's Views).
Last week, they were seen partying in London for a third night in a row before returning to the same hotel.
Last Wednesday, Drake appeared onstage during Rihanna's Anti World Tour concert in Manchester and told the crowd: "Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen... I'm gettin' my heart broken."
I die in a lot of movies. I don't know why - it's one of the unusual things about my career. I guess it's a big rehearsal for the inevitable.
